Cookies Policy

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket. Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

Technical Cookies

Technical Cookies have the function of allowing the developing of some activities strictly related to the operation of this online space. They are used by the owner of the website and can be divided into the following subcategories:

navigation cookies, via which browsing preferences can be saved to optimize the User’s browsing experience;
analytics cookies, via which statistical information regarding the Users navigation can be acquired. Such information is treated in aggregate in anonymous form;
functional cookies, including third party cookies, used to activate specific functions of this website and necessary to provide a service or to improve it.

These cookies do not require the consent of the User to be installed and used.

Session cookies

Session Cookies are used in dynamic websites (CMS) and stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.

Social networks and third party cookies

Social Network and third party cookies are are set from a different domain than the one visited by the user. For example, the website might use a third party analytics company who will generate their own cookie to perform this service. The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from sites such as Google Maps or Tripadvisor, and these sites may set their own cookies.

Statistic Cookies

Google Analytics with anonymous IP (Google Inc.)

Google Analytics is a freemium web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Whenever someone visits a web site that uses Google Analytics, if JavaScript is enabled in the browser, then Google tracks that visit via the user's IP address in order to determine the user's approximate geographic location. In addition to transmitting information to a Google server, the tracking code sets first party cookies (if cookies are enabled in the browser) on each visitor's computer. These cookies store anonymous information such as whether the visitor has been to the site before (new or returning visitor), the timestamp of the current visit, and the referrer site or campaign that directed the visitor to the page (e.g., search engine, keywords, banner, or email).
